Indra’s Net

Jane Braddock
USA - Tennessee 2003

“In the heaven of Indra, there is said to be a network of pearls so arranged that if you look at one you see all the others reflected in it. In the same way each object in the world is not merely itself but involves every other object and in fact is everything else.”

– Translated by Sir Charles Eliot from the Avatamsaka Sutra, approximately 500 BCE
